Iwokrama International Center for Rainforest Conservation and Development manages the nearly one million acre (371000 hectares) Iwokrama Forest in central Guyana to show how tropical forests can be conserved and sustainably used to provide ecological, social and economic benefits to local, national and international communities. The Iwokrama Forest and the Rupununi Wetlands and savannahs offer visitors the opportunity for an exceptional natural and cultural experience set in a learning context.
The 154 meter (505 feet) state-of-the-art Canopy Walkway envelopes you in the jungle's mid-level canopy from heights of up to 30 meters (98 feet). If you visit at dusk or dawn, you'll have the best chance to see birds like the Green Aracari, Scarlet Macaw, Guiana Toucanette or Channel-bill Toucan. Red Howler Monkeys may also be observed.
